comment rsync over ssh issue
I think the dry run is telling you it wants to make permissions changes to all the files - the a option is archive mode which preserves permissions.

Honestly, the best thing I can think of for your situation would be to find a new job. It sounds like you're doing well on the job itself - even taking some (IMHO) unwarranted risks to keep him happy - but if your boss is that trigger-happy and excitable, you won't ever be able to make him happy.

comment CentOS 6 - Kernel 3 from CentOS 7 Repo?
I would recommend not installing a CentOS 7 package on a CentOS 6 system. Going the other way is more acceptable, but I still wouldn't want to do it myself.

comment CISCO UCS servers and linux
I'm running an entire datacenter of UCS with RHEL on them - they work right out of the box for me. Two datacenters, actually, one with 6 chassis and the other with three, all fully populated. Roughly half are VMware ESXi blades. No special tweaks, no funky configuration settings - of the half that are linux, about half of those are booting from local disk, the other half from SAN disk.
